A financier is a biscuits eaten with coffee or tea or just for the pleasure of it. Normally, a financier is made with ground almonds or hazelnuts. You can be creative and even add some small fruits too.
I had a small packet of sim-sim bites in my kitchen. They are roasted sesame seeds bonded with jaggery. Jagerry is unrefined sugar which can be bought in large cones and is dark brown in color. I pulverized the sim sim bites to a rough powder.
My quantity is for a silicone tray of 24 mini financiers. If you need more then multiply accordingly.
- Sim sim bar 75 to 100 gr pulverized in a food processor
- Icing sugar 80 gr
- Flour 35 gr
- 4 egg whites
- 100 ml of melted butter
- Heat up the oven to 180 Celsius
- Brush some of the melted butter to brush your pan. You don’t have to butter silicone trays but I did
- Mix the sim sim powder, the icing sugar and the flour
- Add the egg whites and the melted butter. The mixture will be grainy due to the sesame seeds
- Pour the mixture to the rim of each mold
- Cook at 180 Celsius for 15 minutes. Let the financier cool a little before unmolding
